can draw out of the collection. so here we have george stinney. he was 14 years old when he was convicted of killing an 11-year-old girl in south carolina in 1944. he was 14 years old. he was barely 95 pounds dripping wet. he was five foot tall, and he was swiftly convicted and executed within three months of this crime. now, when he was executed, he was put in an electric chair. of course, this was built for adults, so they could barely get the straps around his wrist and around his legs. he was so skinny and thin. but this speaks to the issue of do we want to execute in this country people who are children? and then he would create an index card on that individual person. so here we see george stinney, and this is espy, he created this card. talks about barely 14 years old, where he was from in south carolina, march 24, 1944, he encountered an 8-year-old and an 11-year-old girl who worked with george stinney's father, it seems like. and eventually, a fairly brutal crime was committed, and says here: speedily brought to trial for the death of ms. binnicker. he was convicted and
